Who would have thought that this ol' standby dip recipe could be healthy?!?!
The secret to making this an energy boosting / 'feel good' dish is in the quality of the ingredients, here's a few examples: - Grass-fed, organic and full fat dairy contains exponentially more CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) than non-grass fed, which helps with the breakdown of adipose lipids (belly fat). - Artichokes help with bile production which emulsifies (breaks down) fat, making it easier to digest. - Then there's the antioxidant benefits of garlic and spinach and VOILA nutritious and soooo delicious!
NOTE: This wonderfully nutritious dip is very high in calories, so if weight gain is a concern... - try and stick to a 1 ounce (2 tablespoon) serving...
1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat small casserole dish or cast iron pan with coconut oil or avocado oil.
2In a mixing bowl stir together cream cheese, yogourt, mayonnaise, garlic, parmesan, mozzarella and pepper.
3Stir in artichokes and spinach
4Spread mixture evenly into prepared baking dish. Bake in preheated oven until heated through and melty, about 20 minutes or until starting to brown.
6Serve with tortilla chips and your favourite veggie sticks.
